Piezoelectric and Piezoresistive Effects in Robotics

Below, we'll look at piezoelectric and piezoresistive effects. Neither of those is new, but engineers are applying them in creative ways within the field of robotics or through methods that may one day improve robotics.

PI USA - Difference between Gantry & Split-Bridge

A traditional gantry system employs X-Y or X-Y-Z range of motion. Mounted on a base plate, usually granite, 2 parallel rails constitute the synchronized Y axis motion while the cross axis (bridge axis) provides the X motion. A vertical axis can be added on the bridge for the Z motion. A Split Bridge system can be less complex than a traditional gantry system because synchronization of the two parallel linear motors is not required. Both systems are used in industrial production, testing, and additive manufacturing.
